Life in the Woods Debuts at Washington Irving in Tarrytown

Washington Irving fourth and fifth-graders explored the themes of kindness, acceptance and consciousness in an original musical revue called Life in the Woods, inspired by Stephen Sondheim’s Into the Woods and Disney’s Brother Bear. Performed December 6, the show was written and arranged by Nancy Seabold and produced and directed by Barbara Turk of the Family YMCA of Tarrytown. “Consciousness is very important,” said student Madeleine Choi. “By being conscious, you can be more kind.” “It is a pleasure to work with the children. They are amazing,” said Turk. Seabold agreed, “If participating even makes one person more aware of their own gifts, it is worthwhile.” The Foundation for the Public Schools of the Tarrytowns and the Kids Club of Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow supported this event
